Flash Skype Video cards = Flash Skype Client in the Near Future?

This morning I was playing with the new video e-card creation tool from Skype, which is just in time for Christmas, Hanukkah and the rest of the holidays. It's called Video cards with Skype (http://www.skypevideocards.com).

Facebook fans can easily embed/send the cards to your Facebook friends instantly or use the "Video cards with Skype" Facebook app (http://apps.facebook.com/videocardswithskype).

The new skypevideocards.com is a no-download Flash-based video creation tool that lets you embed videos or email them to friends/family. Sightspeed and others have had this for awhile. What's interesting is that this is the first app by Skype outside of the main Skype client - at least that I'm aware of. With this Flash-based video recording tool, could a Flash-based VoIP client by Skype be far behind? We shall see. That would be huge news if Skype did create a no download Flash client, but there are some technical hurdles to that I'm sure (i.e. supernodes would be hard to run under Flash).

Here's a video demo from me with some holiday greetings to fans of the VoIP & Gadgets blog. Thanks for your support and readership these past 4 years!
